Shannon Airport Set for Busiest Weekend of the Year, this June Bank Holiday

Shannon Airport is set for its busiest weekend of the year – this June Bank Holiday – with more than 52,000 passengers expected to use the airport.

Shannon has also reported that its overall passenger numbers from January to the end of May this year are up 8% (over 753,000 versus 700,000) when compared to 2023.

Mary Considine, CEO of The Shannon Airport Group, said: Our team have been working hard to ensure that passengers coming to Shannon Airport over the busy Bank Holiday period and throughout the summer can have an enjoyable and easy experience travelling through our airport.  With additional capacity and increased frequencies on a range of Ryanair services and the recent introduction of Delta’s new service to New York-JFK, passengers have a wide variety of destinations to choose from. This summer we will operate 33 services to 11 countries in popular locations in Europe, the UK and US.”

“We have passengers flying Shannon from all parts of Ireland as they discover the convenience and ease of using our airport. There’s also a steady rise in tourists arriving to explore the Wild Atlantic Way, which will significantly benefit the regional economy this summer. We thank our passengers for choosing to fly Shannon.”
